right oil for engine xc 302c

is 20w-70 too thick for my 85000km 302c that has had an easy life. Would this oil thickness be the cause of the tapping sound?

Yep.

With that few miles, I would even try a 15w-40 and see how it goes. Does it use any oil? Don't use synthetic, waste of money if you do 5,000 k oil drains.

If the 15W-40 is a bit noisy, go up to a 20W-50, and drop it back to a 15W-40 in winter.

Cheers

Penrite HPR 30 is still a 20w-60. That V8, with 85,000 k's, is only just run-in, and could take a thinner oil.

If it were mine, I would run a petrol rated diesel engine oil 15W-40. Get rid of the tick as well.

cheers

I used to run Penrite HPR 50 (70 Weight) in the Cleveland in my XB when it had very old and loose bearings.
